Examples

The following code example is designed for use with Windows Forms, and it requires PaintEventArgse, which is a parameter of the Paint event handler. The code performs the following actions:

  • Creates a black pen.

  • Creates the start, end, and two control points for the curve.

  • Draws the Bézier curve to the screen.

private:
   void DrawBezierPoint( PaintEventArgs^ e )
   {
      // Create pen.
      Pen^ blackPen = gcnew Pen( Color::Black,3.0f );

      // Create points for curve.
      Point start = Point(100,100);
      Point control1 = Point(200,10);
      Point control2 = Point(350,50);
      Point end = Point(500,100);

      // Draw arc to screen.
      e->Graphics->DrawBezier( blackPen, start, control1, control2, end );
   }
private void DrawBezierPoint(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create pen.
    Pen blackPen = new Pen(Color.Black, 3);
             
    // Create points for curve.
    Point start = new Point(100, 100);
    Point control1 = new Point(200, 10);
    Point control2 = new Point(350, 50);
    Point end = new Point(500, 100);
             
    // Draw arc to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawBezier(blackPen, start, control1, control2, end);
}
Private Sub DrawBezierPoint(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Create pen.
    Dim blackPen As New Pen(Color.Black, 3)

    ' Create points for curve.
    Dim start As New Point(100, 100)
    Dim control1 As New Point(200, 10)
    Dim control2 As New Point(350, 50)
    Dim [end] As New Point(500, 100)

    ' Draw arc to screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawBezier(blackPen, start, control1, control2, [end])
End Sub

Remarks

The Bézier curve is drawn from the first point to the fourth point. The second and third points are control points that determine the shape of the curve.
